Rob attended Highland Park High School and participated in football, baseball, and lacrosse. He knew as a teenager that he wanted to become a lawyer. After graduating in 1996, he enrolled at the University of Colorado at Boulder and became active in outdoor sports while pursuing his degree. He took up backpacking and hiking, and he and his brother Nathan spent summers together on various trips trekking through Greenland and Pakistan!
After receiving his B.A. in political science in 2000, he moved to Alabama, where he worked at an outdoors clothing and equipment store, teaching kids to rock climb and traveling around the South to climb and hike. He earned his J.D. from the University of Tulsa School of Law and eventually made the move back to Colorado to join The Wilhite Law Firm in 2005. Rob is proud to serve as the Managing Partner and is excited to expand the firm to the Lone Star State to open The Wilhite Law Firm!

Rob has competed in over 25 full-distance Ironman competitions since then, including in Hawaii, Norway, Africa, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. However, when he is not training, he is chasing his young daughter and dog all around the house!
